Most jazz gigs are designed for a seated audience which has always seemed a bit wrong to me – I want to move when I hear something that moves me. A diet of Northern Soul and Tamla Motown in my formative years, I’ve never lost the taste for a groove and have always wanted to play for dancing – after all that’s where jazz has its roots.
Talking with London Jazz Awards Best Jazz Vocalist 2010 Cleveland Watkiss recently I discovered he had the same idea, so I asked him to come down to the Rose Theatre Kingston to make music to dance to. Our first gig is on Saturday 10th November 2012
Admission is £8, doors open at 7:00pm, food is available and the music starts at 8:30pm. The Heads and Feet House Band features Winston Clifford, drums, Jonathan Gee, piano, Neville Malcolm, bass and myself on saxes. See the flyer, attached. It would be lovely to see you there.
Best wishes Tim
